Question about ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard
When ever i try to install a fresh copy of windows xp ..it fails...it get hangs at the time when it says "installation will complete in 32 minutes " and it remains as such for ever , as i think there is problem in installing my network devices...how do i handle this situation without taking my system to an expert..?
Please click on this link for the last updated drivers posted by Asus for the K8V-MX motherboard.
After reading the trouble you seem to have this might not be windows hanging on installing a simple driver. You're trouble may be caused by the primary hard drive not allowing windows to write to the drive. There is no other reason why windows would hang. Window should load completely with out you having to install any specific driver from the Asus CD. Motherboard drivers like the LAN driver can wait until windows has finished installing its self.
(This is normal for a windows install).
Suggest you go to the hard disk drive, manufacture's web site & download their tool /utilities, setup software. (This software works out side of windows in a dos like mode). You can create either a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD disk which will allow you to check the drive for internal errors. The software will clear the sectors & repair the hard disk drive if needed allowing window to install. You can also use the software utilities to format the drive rather than using windows. This will ensure there is nothing wrong with the drive. Than load you're window CD into the CD-ROM & install windows. When windows has finished installing you can than install the driver's from the Asus CD. Than go to the above Asus web side & download & install any driver's that are newer than on the CD. Lastly update windows to SP2. Do not install SP3 until you are 100% sure windows & the motherboard are running perfect.
Good Luck! Take you're time.
